This is an update to this post and this post.

We get requests all the time about this park, which is currently having the finishing touches being applied on the Pendleton Street side of the Wythe Street park (Click link above if you have not seen the renderings). Trees are planted and a pathway has been installed. Looks like they have to finish the pathway and some work on the Fayette Street side of the park before it will open.

I have a call into a few people and will update as soon as I have something definitive.

Via Facebook, one of our readers writes in to say they found a cat:

We do not want her to go to a shelter. She is friendly and sociable. One of her ears has a nick, and the end of her tail is blond.

She walked into our house about a week ago when I left the door open. I believe she either belongs to someone or was abandoned.

We want to find her family.

Cat found in the Del Ray area of Alexandria, Virginia

After reaching the NFL playoffs the year before, the Washington Redskins regressed last year to 3-13. There were high hopes at the start of this season which have gone by the way side with the team looking to right itself. I appreciate Coach Gruden’s honesty when it comes to RGIII but, can this new found honesty cure what ails this team? I have to admit that for the first time in my life, I am seriously considering not being a fan of this team anymore. What about you are you done with the team?

Supposedly Gruden has the power to bench Griffin and NFL Gameday looks at if the RGIII-Gruden relationship can be repaired.

I don’t think they will win this week as they travel to San Francisco to play the 49ers. What do you think? If you don’t root for Washington, who do you root for?

Here are the LIVE tweets for this week’s game going on NOW.
